Features

35WStandard Equipment

  • 35W HEADLIGHTS: Your exploring or work doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Powerful twin headlights offer better illumination down the trail.

Standard Equipment

  • TRAXLOK: Our rock-solid system lets you choose either 2WD or 4WD, giving you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and maximizing available traction (in 4WD) when you need it most.
  • INDEPENDENT ASSIST LIGHT: The 45-watt assist light now runs independently of the headlights so you can turn it on when you need it, and turn it off when you don’t.
  • DIGITAL METER: In addition to the basics, the Foreman’s instrument panel offers extra information: a clock, water temperature gauge, our “maintenance minder” system and indicator for our electronic differential lock.
  • EASY-TO-USE REVERSE LEVER: Need to back up to load your ATV or get out of a tight spot on the trail? The Foreman sports a special reverse lever mechanism that’s designed to be simple to use. Its intuitive design makes it quick and easy to operate.
  • ELECTRIC POWER STEERING: Both speed- and torque-sensitive, Honda's Electric Power Steering (EPS) excels at reducing steering effort and kickback through the handlebar. It's a big help when riding in ruts, over rocks or on long side hills. A specially engineered mounting system for the EPS unit increases strength and rigidity.
  • POWERFUL ACG OUTPUT: An alternator offering extra output means the Foreman is capable of handling more of your accessory power needs.
  • EASY SERVICE ACCESS: The Foreman’s body styling is not only aggressive, it’s functional. It features a tank and side covers that come off in one piece and without using any tools. That means quick and easy access to the engine.
  • COMFORTABLE SEAT: A plush seat and open rider triangle (Bars/Seat/Pegs) teams up with the suspension to really treat you right. Superior ergonomics have always been a Honda priority, and the Foreman is no exception. With thicker, softer foam, it’s more comfortable than ever.
  • SUPERIOR CARRIER CAPACITY: With strong, steel carriers front and rear, and with both offering increased capacity than earlier models, the Foreman is ready to carry what you need.
  • SWINGARM SUSPENSION: The Foreman’s 4x4 rear swingarm with it’s solid axle provides superior capability for towing and hauling. Its long suspension stroke and plush seat let you tackle your favorite trail or the toughest chores in comfort all day long.
  • SEMI-DRY-SUMP ENGINE DESIGN: Compact and lighter-weight, the Foreman's overhead-valve, semi-dry-sump design creates an engine that's not only shorter from top to bottom, but one that enhances handling by lowering the center of gravity and increasing ground clearance.
  • FUEL INJECTION: By incorporating an oxygen sensor into the system, the Foreman delivers both better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The ECU instantly adjusts the fuel injection mapping to match riding conditions for maximum fuel efficiency. The result: more time on the trail and more money in your pocket.
  • ELECTRONIC DIFFERENTIAL LOCK: When you’re in 4WD mode, and you need to get the power to both front wheels, you can just flip the switch on our electronic differential lock to maximize available traction. The vehicle display will tell you when the diff lock is fully engaged.
  • LIQUID COOLING: Our time-tested Honda engine is liquid-cooled to provide more consistent operating temperatures and more power than a comparable air-cooled motor. This adds up to better performance and longer engine life.
  • STYLING: The Foreman line's bodywork gives it a tough look. But it does more than just look good: it's designed to last, despite the scrapes and dings of the job or the woods, and to help protect you from mud and other debris.
  • EMISSIONS: Meets current California Air Resources Board (CARB) and EPA off-road emissions standards.
  • WARRANTY: One year transferable limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.
